Life can get busy and maybe you didn’t have time to do the training between classes or you had to miss class because of another obligation. This class structure is set-up in levels so you can come back where you left off without feeling left behind. You can move through the program at your own pace so that you feel comfortable and confident that your dog knows and will follow through with commands. Each level consists of specific obedience tasks that you teach your dog to do before you can move onto the next level. Upon completion of the class you will have a dog that can perform Obedience on and off leash. 16 weeks of class included
